Communication in Autism adopts a multidisciplinary approach to explore one of the most common developmental disorders associated with communication impairment. Perhaps the most fascinating thing about communication in autism is that variation is as extreme as it could possibly be. While some individuals with autism have age-appropriate language, a number have exceptional language skills; others have little or no spoken language. In between these extremes are individuals who experience significant linguistic impairments. These impairments can affect peer relations and literacy skills. The chapters in this volume provide comprehensive coverage of both the theoretical underpinnings and the practical aspects of autistic communication. The result is a volume that showcases the wide range of methodologies being used in this field of research. It is invaluable for scientists, service providers, parents, individuals with autism, and students learning about communication and autism (e.g., in psychology, speech pathology, and education).

Table of Contents
“Joanne Arciuli and Jon Brock have assembled a truly unique volume of essays concerning the varied aspects of communication in ASD. Its contents provide not only up-to-the minute information on research on a wide range of aspects of communication in autism, but thoughtfully apply this research to practical problems faced by this population. The integration of research on both oral and written language is an especially useful feature. The volume will be of great interest both to scholars and practitioners in the field.”
“Communication deficits pervade almost every aspect of the lives of individuals with autism, from infancy onwards. This book, edited by Joanne Arciuli and Jon Brock, focuses on the many different domains that are affected, including prelinguistic symbolic development, emerging vocabulary, prosody, conversational skills, and literacy. Differences between autism and other disorders also characterised by severe communication deficits are addressed, as are possible causes. Contributors to the volume are experts in their various fields and the book provides an excellent and comprehensive review of both theoretical and experimental work in this area. The practical and case examples provided also ensure it will be of value to clinicians aswell as researchers.”
